The #Make4DLDay Challenge
- This year, the National Writing Project and Educator Innovator, in partnership with Digital Learning Day, the Afterschool Alliance, and Edutopia, introduced the #Make4DLDay Challenge, encouraging educators to celebrate the day by engaging in digitally creative projects. Many then shared their activities using the hashtag #Make4DLDay.
Overview of the Day
- Organized by the Alliance for Excellent Education, Digital Learning Day was not only a day to nationally recognize exemplary work surrounding digital learning, but was also a call for educators in and out of school to share what they are doing in their daily practice with digital and connected learning. In addition to celebrating these achievements, questions of access and diversity also arose.
- Although the focus was on educators and students, many national organizations and corporate sponsors participated. Several National Writing Project and Educator Innovator partners and collaborators joined in the celebration, sharing out resources and collections of interest.
